Environmental Policy

RDD-AC Limited T/A Zimbl recognises that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements.

We are committed to reducing environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods.  The founding ethos of our business is to help people and to help the environment around us by creating a service that will allow journeys made by traditional fossil fuel burning cars to be replaced with electrically powered ones.

Every step in our business and customer journey is done with a goal of being net zero carbon in the real world.

Zimbl’s mission is to enable people to eliminate inconvenient car ownership through the use of exclusively electric, shared vehicles. Our service reduces the number of urban cars, thereby lowering transport CO2 emissions and air pollutants across the UK.


Zimbl is responsible for ensuring that the environmental policy is implemented. However, all employees have a responsibility in their area to ensure that the aims and objectives of the policy are met. We take steps both internally and externally to show our commitment to reducing our environmental impact. Below is a summary of our actions:
